Nissan Altima

Nissan AltimaThe Nissan Altima is a mid-size car (formerly compact) currently being manufactured by the Japanese automaker Nissan, and is arguably a continuation of the “bloodline” that began with the Nissan Bluebird in 1957. It has historically been larger, more powerful, and more luxurious than the Nissan Sentra but less so than the Nissan Maxima. The Altima coupe was released on May 25, 2007 as a 2008 model. First officially revealed at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2008 Altima Coupe is Nissan’s first-ever two-door Altima. It has a shorter wheelbase, shorter overall length and lower height than the Altima Sedan. The 2008 Altima Coupe is available with two engines: The same updated VQ35DE in the sedan, a 270 horsepower (201 kW) 3.5-liter 24-valve DOHC V6 or the QR25DE, a 175 horsepower (130 kW) 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder. The 4-cylinder version of the coupe has a base price of $20,490, while the 3.5-liter V6 will have a base price of $24,890.
